After our dinner of pizza last night, I was still hungry for a snack, and it was just my luck that Chad had just made a grocery run and had picked up, unprompted, a few Asian snacks for me to try out on my blog. Enjoy!
Milkis Refreshing Milk and Yogurt Flavor Soda
Smell: Very sweet. Took me a few to figure out what the familiar smell was, but it smells EXACTLY like rainbow sherbet, which makes sense because it’s a drink that is supposed to taste like milk and yogurt.
Taste: Papaya with a Milk Of Magnesia finish. Which is unfortunate because I’m not so keen on the taste of MOM as it almost makes me gag. Even thinking about it now is a bit dicey.
But it was a necessary evil when you were a kid and needed a little help to poo.
Look: The liquid is a watery milky color much like MOM (definitely doesn’t help to sway my opinion in a positive direction). The can is pretty cute though and matches my current manicure that I just happened to apply yesterday afternoon.
Roasted Black Rice Snack………….
First off let’s consider the packaging because I’m sure when you studied the packaging, or just gave it a fleeting glance, you probably thought this was a different kind of product that is currently illegal in the state of Indiana in the form that it presents itself to be on the packaging. So just to address the proverbial elephant in the room, I need to put a disclaimer here……
This is NOT pot. 😛
Smell: One whiff and I was back at the county fairs of my youth. Where fried food comprised 90% of the booths.
Taste: A bit bland, but I’m not mad at it. Finishes with a tiny sweet kick.
Kind of reminds me of snacks my Grandma B used to have on hand, specifically these rice puff snacks that I’d ask her to put in my lunch when she visited our house during the school year.
When you eat these, you feel like you are adding more years to your life. (And helping facilitate your next poo. I know I keep talking about it, but honestly, when you reach a certain age and find something that works, you pass along the information as a PSA. 😉 )
Ending thoughts on both of these snacks: I’m still on the fence about the yogurt soda, but we’ll definitely be repurchasing the Roasted Black Rice snack.
